Dinner table discussions in Dordrecht, Delft and Den Haag

Would appear likely to drift towards the discussion of organ donation, judging from yet another Eurobaromoter survey, this time on, erm, organ donation.

Some 75% of the Dutch have discussed donation and transplants with family, compared to 43% in these parts. The Romanians, Czechs and Cypriots clearly find football, the evening's television programmes and the weather more entertaining, with fewer than one in five reckoning that the fate of one's kidneys and the like makes for an ideal topic of conversation.

The survey is not enormously exciting, but it is mildly comic that 37% of men and 45% of women claim to have discussed it with family members. I very much doubt that the disparity is explained by a prevalence of all female households, more likely that Eurowoman raised the topic when Euroman's mind was elsewhere and he grunted 'erm, yes, that's nice dear/liebling/cherie' etc.
